Rent Smart

Rent Smart strives to guide and inform participants so they may:  1) Learn new skills to build positive relationships with landlords and neighbors; 2) Gain confidence in their ability to find and maintain affordable housing; 3) Understand the application and screening processes used by landlords; and 4) Learn the responsibilities and rights of tenants and landlords. Rent Smart is designed to help those individuals who have little or no rental experience and those who have had difficulty obtaining rental housing.  Participants may be first time renters, as they graduate from school, or homeowners transitioning to renting, individuals with poor rental or credit history, or individual who have other issues that may cause potential landlords to perceive them as high-risk tenants.  Rent Smart learners (89 individuals) in 2016 reported through the end of session evaluation the following increases in rental knowledge via the infographic supplied here.
